Artist: Passion Pit
Album: Chunk of Change EP
With everything going on in the world today, from economic crises, to natural disasters, we can't afford to take ourselves so seriously all the time. Especially when it comes to our choices in music. This is why my track of the week is "Sleepyhead" by Passion Pit.
Now, this is not to say that the group isn't serious about their craft. You can hear the painstaking attention to detail that went into each and every one of their catchy electronic gems. Upon hearing this song, however, you can immediately sense its playful nature. The high-pitched samples and falsetto vocals by singer Michael Angelakos are fun and emotive, making for a song that has substance, but isn't so overly complicated that you have to take anything more from it than the fact that Passion Pit has a knack for writing infectious pop music. Check it out below.
